Welcome aboard Canadian staysail schooner Copper Sky.
Copper Sky offers weekly sheduled wilderness wildlife sailing adventures
for individuals and small groups in the Queen Charlotte Islands and Inside
Since launching in 1987, Copper Sky has made ocean passages the equivalent of 3 circumnavigations of the world. The newest, largest, and only steel passenger ship of her class in Pacific Canada's sailing fleet, she is an immensely strong & seaworthy vessel, performing reliably without a days mechanical delay during 15 years of sailing adventures.
The Captain and Crew.
In 1985, Russ and an old shipmate put their experience & resources together, which led to a partnership in a boat yard & dive shop in Seattle. This in turn led to the purchase of the original Copper Sky, and her transformation from a 72 ft. gaff rigged schooner into an 88 ft. staysail schooner, and the beginning of more adventures.
addition to an excellent cook, the crew is usually rounded out by a specialist
or guide on each of our scheduled trips - a naturalist, professional wildllife
photographer, or bear guide. For special purpose charters, we draw from
a talented pool of professionals. Their expertise includes forest ecology,
marine biology, anthroplogy, geology, ornithology, sailing & marine
sciences instruction, film production & scuba diving.
